Location: Sapporo, Japan
The IWA Particle Separation Conference is a forum for science and technology of particles with a wide size range. It will bring together specialist researchers and professionals from universities, municipals, manufacturers, consulting and other industrial sectors.
Themes of the conference include:
- • Advances in particle science and characterization and in basic mechanisms of particle separation processes;
- • Occurrence of natural and synthetic nano- and microparticles in surface waters and wastewaters;
- • Progress in particle removal technologies, such as coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, flotation, filtration and low-pressure membranes (ultra- and microfiltration);
- • Practical use, full-scale experiences and optimization for these removal technologies, including automatic control;
- • Emerging technologies for particle removal;
- • New treatment chemicals for particle separation;
- • Fate, stability and transformation of engineered nanomaterials in urban wastewater system;
- • Handling of sludge containing nanoparticles; and
- • Advances of nanotechnology-based applications in the water sector (including polyfunctional membranes, nanocatalysts and reactive nanomaterials).
